You don't need to be a car person to understand and appreciate great design. The following ten automobiles will put a smile on your face if you're a gearhead or not.

10.) Jeep Wrangler

Who needs sway bars anyway points at the fact that Jeeps are funky little offroaders with a friendly face and chunky tires. What's not to love?

I have all sorts of people from grandma's to young kids wave, take pictures, high five, and start conversations with me, because they love my Jeep.

9.) Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Spiegel Q. supports my theory about the low-key beauty of modern Astons, especially the smallest one:

It looks amazing and anyone, car enthusiast or not, will turn their heads once this bad ass shutyomouth drives down the street.

8.) First-gen Ford Mustang

Even in Europe, if people see a first-gen Mustang, they start smiling. As a non-car person, you might not know what it is, but you feel its greatness.

7.) C2 Corvette

BrtStlnd is spot on, the C2 is an absolute show-stopper, and not just in the US...

In the U.S. anyway, I think the C2 Stingray is a show/parade-stopper. Everyone knows it. If you asked 100 average American non-car people, I bet 80 of them would have no idea what an E-Type is.

Not sure about the E-Type thing...

6.) Shelby Cobra

Forget the power for a second. If you don't know what's under the hood, all you see is a very cute roadster with a serious attitude. Everybody loves that.

5.) Morgan Three-wheeler

- What's that?
- I have no idea, but I want one.

Seriously, the Morgan Three-Wheeler is a head turner from another dimension. It's even better at this than a funky microcar...

4.) Ferrari 308 GTS

Car nuts like it because it's one of the most beautiful Pininfarina Ferraris ever made. Others like it because of Tom Selleck's mustache.

3.) Volkswagen Beetle

21,529,464 were built, which means everybody has a Beetle story. It's also a design icon looking at you with its two big eyes. Almost impossible to hate.

2.) DeLorean DMC-12

It's a movie car. It's shiny. It has gullwing doors and turbine wheels. You're in love.

1.) BMC Mini

Do you know anybody who doesn't like the original Mini? Exactly. It's timeless.
